When the 990 badgelet was introduced, we had a brief struggle for the ultimate high score on a 10Q quiz play game which ended in a 999 and a few 1000s achieved on quizzes that really didn't qualify because they told the player in the into what the answer would be, so the legitimate high score remained at 999.

Now we do have a 1000, achieved on a regular, average difficulty quiz. Congratulations Sakansh who played this, verified, score on Inquizition's It's Silly Enough to Be True 9

Next challenge - get there on a Multiple Choice quiz, not just a T/F one. I know there was at least a 995 back then when the quiz games were introduced, can anyone top it?

Does this mean the 990 challenge complete text will be updated to show this feat?

Or introduce a new '1000' badge?

I've been thinking about what kind of quiz would have the challenge in the introduction (even back when FunTrivia standards were more relaxed). My guess is it's one of those quizzes where it says that all answers will be true or all answers will be false. That's the only thing I could think of.

So there have been 1000s earlier too?
But I haven't seen any quiz of the ones I have played that happens to tell the answers before itself?
Could not get you there WesleyCrusher, "... a few 1000s achieved on quizzes that really didn't qualify because they told the player in the into what the answer would be, so the legitimate high score remained at 999."

There were three very old quizzes online that had their answers spelled out in the introduction ("All the answers in this quiz are true" or similar). Some players quite quickly took the chance to play those and got the 1000 with ease (it's not a challenge at all). The quizzes were quickly taken offline and obviously the scores didn't count.

If a player knows the answers not by answering the questions but by referencing a string of Ts and Fs that he/she just needs to click off without even looking at the actual quiz, a score can't be called legit.
